Brown patches on the skin may be concerning, but rest assured that melasma does not pose any medical risk. Women are more likely to develop melasma during their lifetime, which could be to hormonal changes. Melasma is often known as the mask of pregnancy, due to women developing this condition while pregnant.
At Rejuvené MD, we offer many different melasma and pigment treatments at our practice in El Paso. Below are a few of the treatments we offer, or you can visit us for more information. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
Intense pulsed light, also known as IPL, is a non-invasive treatment that can be used to treat a variety of blemishes. Melasma and uneven skin tone are a few of the concerns that IPL can be used to address. Light therapy gently heats to skin to allow for cell regeneration, which can help to fade melasma in the long run.
PICO Genesis™ is a laser treatment that is often used to treat stubborn pigment, including skin discoloration and tattoo ink. Melasma doesn’t stand a chance against such a powerful device, and in just a few pain-free treatments you can achieve even skin tone once more. There is no downtime associated with this treatment, and PICO Genesis™ is precise enough not to damage the surrounding tissue.
Chemical peels are comprised of an acid solution that sloughs off dead skin cells and other debris. This can be useful for removing melasma and other pigment, especially if this pigment is superficial. Peels can be customized for your needs, so they can be as light or as deep as your skin requires.
In addition to hormonal changes and sun damage, pigment issues can also be caused by environmental pollution. These pollutants cause the skin to be more susceptible to damage, which can cause melasma and other forms of discoloration. When you visit Rejuvené MD, we can help you find the right facial to fit your needs.
Finding a good skin care routine can help clear your skin of environmental pollutants that can contribute to damage and discoloration. Uneven skin tone is best treated with medical-grade cosmeceuticals, which we can prescribe to you. Our professionals can help design a daily routine that can help you achieve your goals.
